Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: poll on the changing eras

In 1981 I was still a youngster, that year was probably the year I went to the most live gigs (in one year) I ever did.

There was so much going on musically, I rarely had time then to see the GD altho I did see Jerry Garcia Band once that year.

(So I'm unfamiliar with why '81 would be a key year for GD shows).

But man, there was New Order, The Ramones, The Banshees, Roxy Music, Kate Bush, The Jam, The Buzzcocks, Flamin' Groovies... and the neo-Mod bands were just beginning to evolve into the neo-garage psych bands that stormed the underground scene circa '84-'87...

the post-punk bands '81 era were even more interesting than the raw '77 Punk bands...
REM was just starting up... the college radio stations were the thing to listen to... so much I'm not even listing was happening in '81 ('79-'83) that the GD then, to me who had started his musical adventure with them (and Miles Davis in 1970,
at live shows... were irrelevant.

oops, no offense. just telling it from my perspective.

cream-puff, you are definitely speaking my language, no offense taken at all; the early to mid '80s, despite what some would say, were incredible in the evolution of reaching the masses with underground/independant artists/bands; you mention REM, but i would throw in Husker Du, the Smiths, Mission Of Burma, the Feelies, Bad Religion, and later in the '80s, the Charlatans UK, the Chameleons, Galaxie 500, Spacemen3 (admit it, best album title of all time: 'Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To'), all of which took music and performance to heights never before imagined, at least from my perspective; and so, yes, while i was exploring the GD and it's music and 'scene', i by no means failed to discover what else was going on; and as for the '90s, well, that's an entirely different discussion!

sorry to impose, but could you possibly send me your e-mail?
